Hey thanks for the kind words, I do believe that the processing time will go down from this point onwards. You should hear in a month or a month and a half from what I am guessing. Good luck!

My max out should have been 2 months ago. I took tons of vacation over the years that helped me with 3 months recapture time. I have a month left and am going premium for i140 to resolve this issue.

Keep all your experience letters from employers to file i140 immediately.

I m in USA. I140 to be filed in premium processing and be approved and extension papers should reach USCIS after i140 approval and before my max out day.

One cannot stay in USA beyond h1b max out
1. We need i140 approval and extension filed before max out
2. Extension can be filed for 7th year if your perm was filed in 5th year of H1B and awaiting approval.

I140 is submitted in premium. I am not sure if those 3 inauguration holidays will delay the premium processing time. I will post as soon as my I-140 is approved. Lets hope for the best.
